Daktari Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage is an educational animal reserve located near the town of Hoedspruit in Limpopo Province, South Africa. Every Monday morning we welcome a new group of 8-10 underprivileged children from neighbouring communities who stay with us full board for 5 days. Over the course of the week the children receive our structured syllabus covering subjects from conservation, environment and pollution to social talks on drugs, alcohol, sex education and how to make South Africa a better place. All of the teaching is delivered by volunteers from all over the world who pay to experience Daktari and all it has to offer, as a registered NGO the majority of our funding is generated through our volunteers and we could not operate without their help. The Daktari reserve itself is home to a variety of rescued birds, animals and reptiles all of which are used to educate and inspire the children and volunteers who stay with us.
